I just want to know about annual pass for volcano bay. Im a orlando resident. I Judy want one park.
Unfortunately it looks like there is not a way to get an annual pass to just Volcano Bay. Year round access to Volcano Bay is currently only available in 3-park annual passes.
You can get a Seasonal, Power, Preferred, or Premiere 3-park Annual Pass, as they all include Volcano Bay.
Premier has no black-out dates, but all of the other options are blacked-out for the month of July at Volcano Bay. (No word yet if this is only for 2017 or all years.)
They may offer a stand-alone Volcano Bay Annual Pass in later years, but for now it’s only available with the other two parks.
just one day pass for volcano bay for senior citizen
A one day pass is $67 for adults. You can call 407-224-7840 to see if they offer discounted tickets for Seniors, (I’m not certain that they do.)
AARP and AAA might offer discounted tickets, but if they cost more than $67 (plus tax) for a single day, you’re better off ordering from Universal directly. Some ticket sellers currently only offer Volcano Bay bundled with other park tickets, so you may only be able to purchase single day tickets from Universal directly: 407-224-7840
One day express pass for two children for Volcano Bay I’m asking what is the total price
Unfortunately Universal has discontinued the sale of Express for Volcano Bay at this time.
If you have already purchased Express you will still be able to use it the day of your visit, but no additional Express passes will be sold until further notice.
You may contact Universal Orlando at 407-224-7840 with any questions.
The whole point was the express pass that struck my interest so we don’t have to stand in line on the HOT concrete and wait. How long before they are sold again. Was it first come first serve? Kinda misleading from the commercials!
We do not know when (or if) Express will be sold again. It may have been removed to help the virtual line system work more smoothly and predictably.
The park is set up for virtual lines, so you do not have to stand in line to ride. You use your TapuTapu wristband to reserve your spot in line while you do other things. When it is your time to ride you simply walk up the stairs to slide. The Express passes were skipping the wait and come back process, but in either case you wouldn’t be standing on hot concrete very long to ride.
You can call for details on Express and whether or not it will return yourself: 407-224-7840

I just moved to Orlando and im trying to figure out the best deal for annual passes. I lean towards Universal Studios because i came for vacation last year and had a great time. But othere people are telling me Busch Gardens passes are cheaper..Advice?
Personally I love my Universal Annual Pass most of all. You can get a Busch Gardens+SeaWorld+Aquatica pass for much less than a Universal 2-park pass, but I find myself going to Universal much much more throughout the year. Because Busch Gardens is nearly two hours away from Orlando I only go there a couple times a year, but I do go to SeaWorld and Aquatica lots so I get good use out of the pass.
You could always rotate, and do different parks each year, rather than renewing your passes over and over. Disney costs the most, Universal second most, and SeaWorld parks are the least. But, we also love the food at parks, so keep in mind that Disney has the best restaurants, Universal second best, and SeaWorld/Busch Gardens dead last in the food department.
They all have great rides, so it’s up to you. SeaWorld and Busch Gardens have amazing coasters, Disney has awesome themed dark rides, and Universal has incredible high-tech ride experiences.
Personally, I would say Universal is best for your first year. It’s a good sweet spot between the other two companies. With a bit of everything and middle pricing.
Plus, all of these parks allow you to choose to pay by monthly installments, so will only costs you around $30-$35 dollars per month for even the more expensive parks (after down payment.) So not too shabby. Hope some of that rambling info helps! And have fun!
PS. Be sure to update your driver’s license or ID before purchasing if moving from out of state. All parks offer discounted pricing for Florida residents, but you will need to show ID to pick up your ticket!
PPS. Always get an Annual Pass that includes free parking (for at least one person in your family.) The parking charges are $15 to $20 each time you go and will add up to more than the extra money to get a pass that includes free parking anyway.
Say I have 2 brothers with an out of state ID but I myself am a Florida resident can I buy 3 tickets for the florida resident discount or does every one in the group need to be a resident?
As I understand it, every guest entering the park with a Florida Resident purchased ticket must provide a valid Florida ID upon their first entrance, unfortunately. (If you were to purchase tickets using an Annual Pass discount though, then your brothers would not need an ID to enter, and you would still save money.) You can call Universal’s ticket line for more information and further clarification though: 407-224-7840
I have a preferred annual pass for 3 parks but just want to get a volcano bay one day ticket do I get a discount for an extra ticket.
